Garden Homes Lutheran School
NEWS AND NOTES

TWO STUDENT WELLNESSES SERVICES PLANNED FOR OCTOBER
Keeping our children healthy is a constant concern and responsibility that parents have. During October two free services will be provided at Garden Homes to assist families in this area. On October 4th WLC nursing students will conduct vision screening for all students in K3 - 3rd grade. Students in 4th - 8th grade can receive a screening based on a request by a parent or teacher.

The second health service will be Seal-a-Smile. The Seal-a-Smile program brings in dental hygienists to perform a dental screening, prophylaxis (cleaning), application of topical fluoride and the placement of sealants on all permanent molars. A written summary of their service and evaluation will be sent home with your child. Permission slips will be sent home with children to participate in the Seal-a-Smile program. At the top of the permission slip please indicate whether you wish your child to receive these services or not and then return the permission slip to school. If you give your permission, then complete the rest of the requested information on the document.

SCHOOL REPORT CARD AND EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
State law now requires schools participating in the Choice program to post a link to the school report card on their homepage. This is the first year that Choice schools took part in the school report card system created by DPI. It requires two years of data to receive an official score on the state report card. Therefore, Garden Homes does not have an official score on the report card. The scores listed on the report card represent the state average. If you have questions about the report card, please contact Mr. Dodge.
A link to DPI's list of the available educational opportunities can be found here. It is now required by state law that a link to these opportunities are made available from our school home page.
